I was resting in our small apartment, devouring a steaming bowl of ramen noodles when swiftly, I heard a loud noise coming from the boiler, however it was so loud that I could not even hear myself think. I swiftly put down our chopsticks & walked over to the boiler to see if there was anything I could do, but, as I approached it, I realized that I had no system what I was looking at. The boiler was a black metal box with pipes & dials & buttons, & I had no system what any of them did. I was starting to believe a little uneasy, so I decided to call our landlord to see if he could come & take a look; He was quick to respond, although he told myself and others that he would not be able to make it until the next day. I was starting to believe absolutely anxious now, as I didn’t want to risk anything happening to our boiler while I was asleep. I decided to do some research online to see if I could service it myself. After a few hours of searching, I was able to figure out that the noise was coming from a build-up of air in the pipes. I found a release valve and, with a little hesitation, I turned it. The hissing noise stopped, & I was finally able to relax again. I was so relieved that I could get back to our bowl of ramen & care about the rest of our meal in peace. The next day, our landlord came over & took a look at the boiler. He was impressed that I had figured out the problem & fixed it, & he even gave myself and others a small discount on our rent for being so handy.
